CHANT AVEDISSIAN: ICONS OF THE NILE
LEIGHTON HOUSE MUSEUM, LONDON
3–14 OCTOBER 1995
Chant Avedissian started his now-famous series of painted stencils in 1991, during the Gulf War. Witnessing the media coverage, and overwhelmed with feelings of powerlessness and sadness, he began to recall faces, places and symbols from his past.
